SAN ANTONIO, Texas (UNLVRebels.com) -
Junior Katelyne Herrington became the first Rebel to win an event at this year's championships as she won the 100 fly in a NCAA 'B' time of 52.55. Her morning swim of 52.18 was both a new UNLV and Mountain West record, and was .07 seconds off an automatic 'A' time. She is the first Rebel to win a conference title in the 100 fly since Nicole Hunscher at the 1994 Big West Championships. Two more Rebels scored in the event, with senior Carmen Robb placing eighth in 54.76 and freshman Jessica Wong was 14th (55.91).
